Congrats Malala Yousafzai!

A huge congratulations is due to one of our generation’s most inspiring individuals, Malala Yousafzai who made history today as the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize at just 17 years old.

At the age of 15, Malala suffered an attack on her life by the Taliban after courageously speaking out against education restrictions in her town in Pakistan.

Malala bounced back from the Taliban’s failed attempt at taking her life and continues to speak out louder and braver in advocacy for accessible education to children all over the world:

Let us remember: one book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world. 

Malala said when addressing the UN’s Youth Assembly.
